SPORTTAPE at the 2016 St Davids Day Run

February 29, 2016 2 min read

It's been a while since we attended an event, but yesterday we had the pleasure of exhibiting at the St Davids Day Run. We saw this as a perfect opportunity to give something back to the wonderful runners of Cardiff, a city that has been incredibly good to us since we launched SPORTTAPE back in 2012.

We partnered with local charity Cancer Research Wales for this event and were incredibly happy to set up out tent next door to theirs! The charity funds world renowned Cancer research all over Wales and we were very proud to be raising money for them. All money raised from therapy during the race went directly to Cancer Research Wales, the full total that we raised will be announced in the coming days.

We were also incredibly lucky to have 2 fantastic therapists with us to help offer injury advice, taping and massage to the runners.

Adam Davies is an elite-level soft tissue therapist and expert taper. You may know from his time with us at SPORTTAPE. @amd_massage @HealthSportsUK

Lauren O' Reilly is a sports massage student and elite level athlete at the University of Bath. @Laurenoreilly

The guys were there all day offering therapy, injury advice and taping to runners of all abilities. Here you see some post-race treatement!

Some of our earlier treatment in the day focused on calf strain, which Adam treated using the following technique:  

We also had the pleasure to talking to a few guys who were a little fatigued from refereeing duties in games yesterday. Lauren put the guys back in one piece and we heard of many personal bests following the race!

Were you at the St Davids Day run too? Did you get treatment from one of the team, or did you miss us altogether? We'd love to hear any race day stories, so get in touch
